Navy locks in on Alion for torpedo development

The Naval Sea Systems Command has awarded a one-year, $8.3 million contract option to Alion Science and Technology Corp. to help develop the next generation of torpedoes for the Navy.

The work is for the Undersea Weapons Joint Program Office, a partnership between the U.S. Navy and the Royal Australian Navy to develop the heavyweight torpedoes. The initial 10-year support contract was valued at $75 million.

The subcontractors working with Alion's Acquisitions Program Management Group are BearingPoint Inc., McLean, Va., and EDO Corp., New York.

The contracting team will provide program, project and financial management services. It also will perform business and command operations, engineering and lifecycle support.
